I am definitely not the only single, independent sistah (SIS) on the planet. I have plenty of Black, professional female friends who are single and dealing with the solo life. We’re sort of a new phenomena. Yes, there was Wilona of “Good Times” fame back in the ’70s. She may be one of the first depictions of the SIS on TV. Then there was “Living Single” and “Girlfriends,” proving that we’re becoming more and more popular. However, the sitcom version is one thing. The real-life version is more like an hours-long docu-drama. Since there aren’t too many real-life models out there, we’re learning as we go.

What is there to learn? Plenty. How to stay friends with your BFFs who’ve jumped the broom and now have new priorities. How to convince your boss that you do have a life after hours and are not always available at a moment’s notice. How to combat the stereotype of the black, angry woman.

Oh, and then there’s the man thing.  

So, this is a chronicle of my experiences as a SIS, and I’m hoping to get some feedback, advice from other single, independent sistahs, and maybe offer some encouragement, too.
